states. at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya's second largest city, at least one american staff member was killed after gunmen stormed the compound and burned it down. we've got some amateur video here into nbc news from the scene. if you listen, you can hear gunshots going off in the background. witnesses say the attackers were armed with automatic rifles, rpgs. libyan forces stationed there said to have little to stop the violence. >>> in neighboring cairo, angry protesters scaled the fortified walls of the u.s. embassy, destroyed the american flag and replaced it with a black islamic banner. most of the u.s. diplomatic staff had already been evacuated in anticipation of this protest. both incidents reportedly are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel.

"morning joe" starts right now. >> the president takes responsibility not just for the words that come from his mouth but also from the words that come from his ambassadors, from his administration, from his embassies, from his state department. they clearly sent mixed messages to the world and the statement that came from the administration and the embassy is the administration. the statement that came from the administration was a statement which is akin to apology and i think was a severe miscalculation. >> as for the ones we lost last night, i want to assure you we will bring their killers to justice. and we want to send a message all around the world to anybody who would do us harm, no acts of terror will dim the light of the values that we proudly shine on the rest of the
to prime minister in that region a chance to throw a rock at the u.s. embassy, they would. so this is their excuse. >> look at what's happening in afghanistan 11 years later. >> and look what's happening in afghanistan. and is it just me? willie, is it just me, or is it -- we have the grave concern about the tragedy that happened to the ambassador and our people that have served so proudly for, you know, for the state department who were killed. and yet this weekend, more u.s. troops in afghanistan gunned down by our supposed allies. this happens every day. this happens every day. and yes, our u.s. ambassador being killed is just absolutely horrific. but every single day, young american men and women are gunned down in afghanistan. >> 51 of them this year on insider attacks. 51 nato troops including many americans this year. >> nobody's talking about it. >> to your point exactly about the film, after the fact the taliban, on this insider attack, said it was about the film. this was about the film. >> oh, just shut up. >> you don't storm into one of the most heavily fortified b

a couple days obsessing over a 1980s or 1990s redistribution quote from obama right? that was the news of the day for the romney campaign at that time. we gave more attention to that than we did to the revifgs the gdp numbers or growth numbers that happened yesterday down from 1.7 to 1.3% growth. you would think in an ideal world for romney that would be a bigger story. the economy grew much slower in the second quarter than we thought. >> right. >> they put a lot more emphasis and push behind the redistribution quote which was old, sort of meaningless, didn't say much about obama. >> 1998. you're looking at the fact that over the last three months, kelly, you have jobs coming in at hundred dollar a hundred thousand per month. and they're chasing the headline of the day or they pull out a 1998 video. people don't care about that any more than they care about when mitt romney stopped being ceo of bain capital. what they want to know is how the hell are you going to get me back to work? >> when you watch a romney event from beginning to end day after day as we do as students of this you
are "bumps in the road" is extraordinarily out of touch when you have a u.s. ambassador scraped off the streets of benghazi, 20,000 killed in syria. you've got israel, our closest ally in the middle east in open, basically verbal warfare between their leader and our leader. you can go around the entire region. it's mass chaos. troops getting gunned down by supposed allies every day in afghanistan. these aren't bumps in the road. this is an absolute mess. paul ryan's right, this does have the feel of tehran 1979. i'm not saying it's going to go that way, but you remember 1979 and the chaos that ensued. this isn't it. but this isn't a bump in the road. >> this is not 1979. >> so it's not -- paul ryan's not right. >> first of all, how do you know it's not 1979? >> you said it wasn't, and you said it wasn't. >> i said it probably isn't. if i'm president of the united states i don't do what jimmy carter says and call iran stability. the students were racing towards our -- >> isn't the larger issue rather than extracting what the president says during an interview and what the republican
in benghazi, exactly why a u.s. ambassador was killed, and yet he stepped in front of that story when i suspect the more we look at the situation, willie, the worse it's going to look for the president. >> they looked at it in the short term as a political moment of opportunity and didn't think about the long-term impact of it. >>> another interesting thing yesterday, joe, is the raising of the massachusetts health care by mitt romney, by his campaign, bringing this back up, he's had sustained attacks, of course, over what he's called obamacare. the president's health care law. in an interview with nbc news, romney highlighted his own massachusetts health care reform as proof that he does, in fact, care about 100% of americans. >> throughout this campaign as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in my state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> john heilemann, shining a light now on his record on
. this is not how you guys behave. and john, from all the report s i've read, the egyptians said message received. the muslim brotherhood, even, said message received. we're going to pull back. why is this important? this is so important for so many reasons in the middle east. the least of which not being israel and trying to keep -- trying to keep israel safe. >> well, you think about it, you know, the historic u.s. allies in that region, all of those relationships are somewhat more tenuous and trfragile than just few years ago, whether it saudi arabia. you want to have that relationship be strong. i think the president was speaking the truth which is that it's a government in transition. they're trying to figure out what their relationship is. i do think it was very striking, the difference in tone between the phone calls he made to the leaders in libya versus the leaders in egypt. and the leaders in egypt, i think, morsi heard the difference between how he talked to the libyans which was full of love and support versus the way he talked to morsi which had a little bit more of a stern, you know
on this question. just to point out, though, this latest polling was conducted after last week's u.s. embassy attacks which appeared to have impacted the president's numbers on foreign policy. 49% approved, last month that number was 54%. that poll was taken before the release of that videotape. >> mark halperin, you also look at the state-by-state polls out right now, wisconsin, bad news, ohio, it seems the internals keep getting worse. i had one republican operative tell me yesterday there's some question how long they're going to stay in ohio. colorado right now, obama ahead there. virginia, a four-point lead there. mitt romney has an uphill battle. he can still win. we've said it time and time again. we'll keep saying it. but my gosh, just a miserable week for him. what are they talking about in boston? what's their next step? are they in a bunker, or do they understand they've got to make some dramatic changes? >> well, i think they all should read peggy noonan's column which you cited earlier, even if they don't agree with everything in it, but it's very smart in terms of what is going
thing for him to say, and he's got to admit that because you look at some of those 47%s that he was going after, and they are big-time republican voters. >> remember, he's also got, i think, another problem at this point with the economy. the polls show that people's view of the economy has gotten somewhat more optimistic. some of that comes off the democratic convention. some of that comes off the stock market's been up. bernanke has done his thing at the fed. the economy isn't working argument isn't working quite as well. and secondly, as harold alluded to, he hasn't put forward a plan that not only isn't specific but isn't a plan that people can look at and say, i get it. this is how we're going to get 12 million new jobs. this is how we're going to get the economy back. but we can take a look at the 47%. and as joe said, i think there's some interesting things about it as you dig into it. so let's start with the fact that as has been pointed out, the percent of americans who don't pay federal tax has been growing. that is a fact. back in the '60s and '70s, it was down here i
at the u.s. consulate in libya that killed four americans. >> reporter: since the benghazi traj tragedy, your opponent has attacked you as being weak on national defense and weak on foreign policy. he said you need to be more aggressive in iran, you haven't done enough to support the revolt in syria and that our friends don't know where we stand and our enemies think we're weak. >> well, let's see what i've done since i've came into office. i said i'd end the war in iraq. i did. i said that we'd go after al qaeda. they have been decimated in the fatah. that we'd go after bin laden. he's gone. so i've executed on my foreign policy, and it's one that the american people largely agree with. you know, if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> we're going to get to iran as well. the candidates were asked about that. but quickly, richard, on this question, explain the fine line the president is walking here, answering it. >> well, the president is out there defending his record. can i make a slightly related point on foreign policy? what's interes
, three years had approval ratings in the low 40s in florida. >> yeah. >> and the states controlled by republicans, for the most part. >> yeah. >> and now you have this medicare issue that president obama is using against the romney campaign. mark, you've got to look at some of the swing states. >> do you want to show that? >> what romney has to do to get to 270. >> ohio is so important. if you just give barack obama the states he's going to win, all the coastal states, the nor northeastern states and wisconsin, you give him ohio, he's at 261 electoral votes. >> barack obama. >> that's without giving him virginia, florida, colorado, nevada, iowa or new hampshire. so all he'd have to do if he won ohio would win nine electoral votes, most of which he's ahead in. >> iowa. >> iowa, colorado, nevada, virginia. ohio is a big one. the only way governor romney could win, if barack obama won ohio, was basically to sweep every other swing state right now. >> that could happen. >> it could. >> i could see a scenario where he wins nevada, where he wins colorado, where he wins new hampshire, whe
, hit and hiss showers and storms. temperatures in the 70s throughout the day. we will see -- at least mild. not going to be that chilly. the worst weather in the country once again coming out of southern illinois through southern indiana. some heavy rain and thunderstorms. they've been near louisville and cincinnati this morning. you're going to dodge them all day long. as far as airports go, i think the cincinnati and louisville parents will probably see the worst of it. maybe delays in st. louis and kansas city from showers and storms. i mentioned it's kind of a gloomy period. the southern half of the country is not experiencing that. neither is the northern half. it's right through the middle. i want to tell you, washington, d.c., one of those spots that you're going to struggle to see sunshine even as we go throughout the next five days in a row. so i really have to say, we've been spoiled this september. and unfortunately, it's coming to an end. you're watching "morning joe." we're brewed by starbucks. stay top of mind with customers? from deals that bring them in with an offer..
the delegate s versus the democrati vote. >> they're saying that moment is going to be used throughout the rest of the election. >> well no. >> they changed the platform. i don't think it's liberal bias in the media that says, this story is pretty much done because they fixed it. >> the president fixed it. >> it is a bit embarrassing for sure and if bill clinton hadn't blotted out everything else with his speech that might get -- >> jon meacham, you wrote a book on the founding fathers and religion and, you know -- there are a lot of founding fathers that knew they had to talk about god and faith to help them blot out other things in their own personal background. but the democrats in 2012 learned once again what politicians in 1776 have figured out, that it's -- it's not a good thing to turn your back on even -- even mentions, shallow mentions of faith. >> you know, it's -- these things come up in times of stress. the founding era, obviously, not the calmest time. >> right. >> so there was a rise in public religion "in god we trust" was inserted, "under god we pledge" inserted during the cold

30s, who's really had no national exposure before. >> yeah. >> his speech was noted a good performance wise but for a speech that's your first big time on the national stage never having done this before, he was very, very strong and i think he will be someone this will do a lot for both barack obama as mark said, but also does a lot for julian castro going forward. >> don't underestimate how big that will play with hispanic viewers. >> talking to announcers overnight on telemundo -- >> bigger than marco rubio's speech? >> probably bigger because democrats tend to get bigger coverage in that media. >> i thought it was good. you know, i'm a little biased, more partial to rubio, i thought if i compared the two, i did last night, rubio came out with the stronger presentation and message, but i think to your point, john, for someone just walking out on the stage for the first time. >> yeah. >> it was a knockout punch. it was very well delivered. right amount of humor, right amount of digs and to mark's point it was a very positive message that will play very strongly in hispani
